About this product
- DescriptionA collection of poems, prose and stories with decidedly gay overtones and a stalgic bent. Boys growing up in the United States during the 1950's and 1960's had little, if any, information about being different. There was literally one to turn to for advice or encouragement. If anything, the dictates of the culture and societal pressures made them feel insecure and outcast. In this first-published collection, Sacramento-based writer Rodion Rebenyar has compiled a variety of poems (written specifically for and with those who don't rmally like to read poetry in mind!), prose and stories which highlight one boy's journey through this turbulent decade. It is a time of discovery, terror and ultimate victory over body, mind and soul. Mature readers will relate to much of what is discussed here. It will make them laugh, cry, reflect and perhaps be uncomfortable at times. Younger readers may gain insights from this collection and come to the conclusion that growing up gay in the United States hasn't changed that much in half a century.
